In Which I Register a Domain

Posted by sallyhinchcliffe on November 17, 2007

OK, so this is serious. I’ve been playing around with this site for a while, but haven’t really made it official. But Birkbeck have just asked me for details of my biography, publications and any website information so I decided to actually take the plunge and register a domain. is now mine, all mine.  I didn’t fancy the naked commercialism of a, or the rampant egotism of a – .net seemed a suitable compromise.

    I’ve just gone for a *.org. According to Wikipedia, .org was created primarily for individuals. But to me it suggests ‘organisation’, which means I now have to turn myself into a multinational company. Possibly a philanthropic one. No pressure.

    Should have picked .net. *sigh*
